Transcript Volume I, Number 8. Long Beach, California. November 26, 1938. HOUSTON MEETS PENSACOLA In Boxing and Wrestling Smoker AT one o'clock this afternoon our wrestling and boxing teams will square off against the teams of the U.S.S. Pensacola in the first official meet of the season. Most of us remember the defeat we suffered last year when they took both the boxing and wrestling championships within the division. We won all other sortees. Be at the Admiral Leigh Gymnasium, San Pedro to cheer our boys towards a victory. We hope to turn the tables this time. It will be the first hard hurdle towards our group championship. Both teams have worked hard in preparing for these matches so the little cooperation you can give them by your attendance will show them that the ship is behind them a hundred percent. The ship's entries in boxing and wrestling are as follows: BOXING Colbert, M. H., Sea2c 118 lb. Holton, H., Matt2c 126 lb. Martin, M. F., Sealc 135 lb. Hodge, M., Matt2c 147 lb. Harris, C. W., Pvt. 160 lb. Adams, W. L., Cox. 175 lb. Lewdanski, J., Sea2c Heavy WRESTLING Chick, E. A., Flc 118 lb. Drover, R. M., MM2c 126 lb. Keimel, R. M., Flc 135 lb. Arthur, R. J., GM2c 145 lb. Butler, 0., Cox. 155 lb. Fordemwalt, J. W., GM3c 165 lb. Miller, J. R., Sealc 175 lb. Vassar, E. B., Cpl. Heavy I COMMANDER KEATING Commmander Robert E. Keating, Flag Secretay to Admiral Kalfbus, collapsed and died Wednesday of this week at Pico St. Navy Landing, Long Beach. As he stepped on the float from the BatFor barge he collapsed, saying, "Get me a doctor." Those were his last words. He did not regain conciousness. Commander Keating will be remembered as Gunnery Officer on the Houston, having been relieved of his duties by Lt.Comdr. Strother at which time Commander Keating went to duty on the California. He was a good officer, loved, honored and respected by all who knew him. More cannot be said — his loss is deeply felt — may he rest in peace. Commander Keating is survived by his wife, Mrs. Margaret Keating, a son, Robert E. Keating, Jr., 19 and a daughter, Margaret C. Keating, 15. THE INEVITABLE CHAIR A Short Story by Gus Death! Not the violent bleeding form but creeping, sly, and malevolent, the kind which causes a man's nerves to shriek out in anquish. Already the cadaverous tinge was beginning to show with the dull, lacklustre hue of departed life. What I had feared had happened. It wasn't my fault. But try and tell them that. Sure, I was responsible. They'd find out sooner or later. I knew they'd get me. I hadn't planned it, yet I hadn't done a thing to avoid the slow cankerous trend of death — and I alone could have prevented this from happening. Have you ever known a fear so devoid of hope that your bones might well have been made of jelly or your blood of some insipid fluid for all the good they did beyond just keeping you together with a weak spark of life ? That was the kind of stark fear which gripped my soul when I visualized the inevitable ending. There could only be one ending — the chair. Yet over and over, in my mind, I pondered ways of escape. I racked my brain for a tiny idea which might show me the loophole. But alas, my best efforts were of no avail and I knew that I must make those flagging, fearful steps to the chair. There was no other course so I gave myself up. The chair was before me now. A little courage must have came to my rescue because I was walking towards it entirely unaided.
